Since arriving in New Zealand with my family back in 2006 from the UK, I have worked for many design companies throughout the country. I am currently one of the senior kitchen designers at Lusso Kitchens Ltd working from the Newmarket showroom in Auckland promoting and selling a range of outstanding Italian kitchens, wardrobes and furniture all from Italy. As a kitchen designer at Lusso Kitchens Ltd, I am in the unique position to bring a wide selection of Italian kitchen brands to the attention of my customers.

My background is in furniture design, and I have a BA (hons) in 3D design from Wolverhampton University UK and a Masters in Furniture Design and Technology from Buckingham Chilterns University Collage UK, so I bring a true design service to my customers, as function is very important to me when considering a kitchen design for my clients. I have spent many years in the kitchen, bathroom and wardrobe industry both in the UK and NZ, so I think I am best placed to advise and guide my customers through the process of a new kitchen.

Back in the UK, I lived and worked in London (a great place to hone your design skills) and worked for many prestigious companies like Alternative Plans, the dealer for Boffi and Hacker kitchens throughout the UK, along with Agape Italian bathrooms. I have also worked for Vitra International, probably one the best office and furniture companies in the world.

I have also worked for David Collins Interior Design, Habitat and Areo. I have also had the opportunity to manage a concession at Conran’s flagship store on the Fulham Road, London designing, selling and promoting the Agape bathroom brand of products from Italy. During my contracted period with David Collins, I was involved with the design of the changing room furniture for the roll out of the new Jaguar clothing stores, throughout the UK.
